DERMAL FILLERS & INJECTABLES IN WIMBLEDON.
Everything you need to know.
Dermal fillers and anti ageing injectables are two of the most popular types of non-surgical cosmetic procedures, with hundreds of thousands of people having the injections every year in the UK.
Administered by an experienced Doctor, who is a level 7 qualified injector, in Care Quality Commision (CQC) approved facilities, Stratum Dermatology Clinic Wimbledon and Raynes Park offers safe, industry leading injections to reduce lines and wrinkles, smooth the skin or to add volume to enhance facial features.
Dermal fillers in Wimbledon
Dermal fillers work by injecting hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced in the skin, into areas of the face which have depleted levels and may look as though they need filling or are experiencing the effects of ageing. These semi-permanent injections, administered by a very fine needle, give a natural plumped and youthful look by providing support and structure to the skin.
Dermal fillers are also widely referred to as lip fillers, lip injections, cheek fillers or face fillers due to the popularity of injection locations. The most common places to have dermal fillers include the lips, cheeks and the nose to increase the appearance of volume, and around the jawline, chin, under the eyes and under the nose to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
During the treatment, the consultant will use an anaesthetic cream to numb the area in preparation for the injections. The natural looking fillers, which contain a leading brand of dermal filler, might feel uncomfortable but shouldn’t be painful and the treated area may be slightly sore and swollen but this should settle down within a few days. The treatment does not require recovery time so you can continue with your normal routine following your appointment. We will follow up post treatment to ensure you have had the desired outcomes and answer any further questions you may have.
Injectables in Wimbledon
Unlike dermal fillers which work by filling lines to enhance facial features, anti-ageing injectables work by relaxing muscles in the face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, resulting in more youthful and rejuvenated skin. The most common areas to have these injections are around the eyes to tackle crows feet, on the forehead to reduce frown lines, and around the mouth to diminish marionette lines.
During your anti-wrinkle treatment at Stratum Dermatology Clinics Wimbledon and Raynes Park, a very fine needle will be used to inject the muscles of the desired area of the face. The treatment does not require recovery time so you can continue with your normal routine following your appointment. You should start to see some changes after a couple of days but it will take around 2-3 weeks to see the full effect, with results lasting between 3-5 months. We will follow up post treatment to ensure you have had the desired outcomes and answer any further questions you may have.
”Genuinely positive experience. Staff in the clinic were consummate professionals - right through from the receptionist, practice manager and nurse. Very thorough and clear in explaining the procedure while being incredibly warm, friendly and welcoming. Cannot praise them enough. Gave me absolute trust in the process and their abilities.
